Allison Sekemoto has done the in thinkable: died so that she might continue to live. Cast out of Eden and separated from the boy she dared to love, Allie will follow the call of blood to save her creator, Kanin, from the psychotic vampire. But there's a new plague on the rise, a strain of the Red Lung virus that wiped out most of humanity generations ago - and this strain is deadly to humans and vampires alike.
Allison thought that immortality was forever. But with eternity itself hanging in the balance,the lines between human and monster will blur even further as Allie faces another choice she could never have imagined having to make..
This is a book 2 review, it may (most likely) spoil book 1
The vampires continue!
The end of the last book left Allison once again, alone. With no attachments she can follow the call from her sire, to come to his aide. In the process Allie gets an unexpected ally - Jackal, who we all know tried to kill Allie and her human friends in the previous book.
I enjoyed Jackal, his taunting, and snide comments throughout the book made the dire situation seem that much lighter. Like oh we're only going to die, it's no big deal. The bickering between him and Zeke was amusing, yes Zeke wanted to get revenge, but he wasn't allowed until Sarren is out of the picture.
This book has so much bloodshed compared to the first. In book one it was all about keeping the human alive inside and not letting the monster take over. Just a kill here or there to survive, whether to feed or when being attacked. But this book is just kill, talk, kill some more. In this book it's more about survival. Killing here and there, and well everywhere.
What I didn't like was that I could see some of the story coming, I knew what was going to happen next. There were no surprises, that spoiled all the fun. I also didn't like the end, a big fat OMG how can you do this to us! and then make us wait for another book! So very glad I didn't read this one too long ago
A beautiful continuation of a grizzly tale. And I am really looking forward to reading The Forever Song.
Still to come
